Headlong Short Info

Headlong are a London-based rock band, consisting of singers/guitarists Matthew Hart and Tom Monks, drummer Josh Cocksedge, and bassist Jonathan Hart. Since their formation in late 2012, they have been growing in and around the London modern rock music scene, building a repertoire of vibrant, powerful, feel-good original songs, based around infectious hooks and a wry sense of humour, which have attracted attention from established artists and labels throughout the music industry.

Along the way they have amassed over 10,000 listens via our YouTube and SoundCloud pages and have performed at some of London’s hottest venues under the management of promoter Andy Cavendish, with the likes of 93 Feet East, the Dublin Castle and the O2 Academy under their belt with more yet to come - as well as attracting the attention of several independent and even major record labels as one of the few remaining non-indie rock bands on the circuit.

Taking inspiration from acts such as Oasis, Foo Fighters, New Radicals and Supergrass, Headlong focus on writing upbeat, feel-good, melodic songs, whilst maintaining the authenticity of rock music - ranging from borderline-satirical ballads to furious walls of sound.

We are currently planning our debut album for next year, but our home demos have already made our mark on the London rock music scene, which you can stream on our website and purchase on CD at our shows. We will be gigging in and around the London area throughout 2015 and beyond, and we hope to see you there!
